(September 22, 2016) -- UTSA has been ranked among the top 100 universities in the United States and among the top 400 in the world according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016-2017. The annual rankings measure world-class universities across their core missions including teaching and research. There are more than 20,000 universities worldwide.
Only six Texas institutions were included in the top 400. They are UTSA, UT-Austin, UT-Dallas, Texas A&M University, Rice University and the University of Houston.
Overall, Times Higher Education ranked 978 institutions from 79 countries, making it the broadest ranking to date. Three other Texas universities, UT-Arlington, UT-El Paso and Texas Tech, ranked in the top 800.

Citations accounted for 30 percent of the ranking’s overall assessment, which includes 13 indicators grouped into five areas: teaching, research, research influence, international outlook, and industry income.
